The Northwestern tennis tournament

will be played tomorrow afternoon on

In the championship match, which will

O'clock, Carver and Waidner, the win
ners of yesterday's finals, will meet
jjayne and Cook, the present cham
pions. The Minneapolis team has held

was of the highest order, and the
greatest enthusiasm was displayed.
The rain of Friday, followed by the hot
s' l^) of yesterday morning, put the
courts in splendid shape and when the
Myers and Slocum-Elting and Elting
match was called shortly before 12
o'clock, the clay was firmer than at
any time during the week. .The rain
in no way Interfered with the tourna
ment except to delay the finish of the
©emi-final doubles, and there was an
Immense crowd to view the afternoon
The morning match was con
cluded in good time, and play that had
L>een interrupted the evening before
was carried through to a conclusion.
The match was taken up at the point
■where it stopped. The score stood
"four-all" in the third set with one set
each side of the net.
The first service was made by Wald
ner; on top of that, his side lost the first
set. Both he and Carver played Slo- >
cum hard, realizing he would probably
be the first to weaken. He did weaken :
In the last two sets, and dropped his
bails over the net with little force.
Several good smashes redeemed his
play, however, and his lobbing was re
ceived with favor. Myers pSayed a
careful game, lobbing his balls well
and placing them to the back of the
conrt. His long drives won him a num
ber of points.
Waidner and Carver played a splen
ud net game. Waidner never used his
gTeat smashing stroke more effectively,
and he was able to meet his opponents
readily. Myers and Slocum leveled the
greater part of their play at Waidner,
but he covered his court effectively.
Of the four players, Carver seemed to
placed his balls to the best advantage,
and his play often won points. The
first set, went to Myers and Slocum at
6-4. Waidner and Carver took the sec
ond at 6-2, and the third at 6-3. When
Myers and Slocum won out the fourth
»et at 6-1. The crowd showed great ex
citement. With this, the score stood two
sets apiece, and a short rest was taken
before the next set was begun.
All four men began to show signs of
exhaustion, and when play opened in
the fifth set, they received the balls
Slowly and carefully. It was not a long
nor hard set. Waidner and Carver won
one game after another, proving the
nore enduring team, and won out at
6-2, taking the match and the tourna

Bernard Bachner Succumb* to Bron
Yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock, Bernard
Baehner died at his home, 60 Western avenue.
His death was quite sudden and wholly un
expected. Last Wednesday he went on a fish
ing trip to Minnetonka. On returning home
he complained of a slight cold, but nothing
was thought of it. That cold, however, was
the beginning of the attack of bronchitis
which caused the death. His wife is absent
from the city visiting in Watertown, Wls.

The Minneapolis gardeners were right in
line yesterday and their novel street parade
was a great success. There were 135 wagons
in the procession, which extended from
Bridge Square to Tenth street. The different
vehicles were nearly all decorated with the
products of the farm and bedecked with gay
signs. The procession was somewhat of an
advertising nature and calculated to give
the general public some idea of the extent
and variety of vegetables produced and on
sale at the market. The parade started from
the new Second street market, went over to
Nicollet, on Nicollet to Tenth, over to Henne
pin and down Hennepin to Second street.

LA FOLLETTE LEADS.
"Wisconsin Republican Convention
Wednesday Will Be a Hot One.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Aug. I.— The
Republican state convention will be
gin in this city on Wednesday noon of
next week, but it will not conclude its
labors until the next day, and there
will be no evening session, unless it
drags along until Thursday night.
The Republican State Editorial asso
ciation has the use of the big Expo
sition hall for Wednesday night, the
speakers have all been engaged and
what was originally intended to be a
great ratification meeting will now be
a demonstration sandwiched in be
tween sessions of the convention. This
peculiar condition of affairs is the re
sult of a great change in the situation
since the time when the arrangements
were completed. 'When these plans
were made the "managers" of the
party were confident that Gov. Upham
would be renominated along with all
the other state officers, and it was
figured that the convention would be
through with all its business before 6
o'clock in the evening. But the storm
grew too strong, and the governor was
swept away, leaving the field open for
the aspirants who are now straining
every nerve to win the prize. Aa it
looks now, it is a seeming imposibility
for the convention to more than get
fairly started at the afternoon session.
It will convene at noon, and after the
transaction of the usual preliminary
business, will adjourn until 3 o'clock.
If everything was arranged and
rushed through on schedule time it
would hardly be able to finish before
7 o'clock. There are fears that an ef
fort will be made by the La Follette
and Elliott forces to overturn the tem
porary organization and obtain con
trol. That would mean quite a fight.
Then there are four candidates to be
nominated, and there is no dearth of
orators among the Wisconsin Repub
licans this year.
The meeting on Wednesday night
will really be the formal opening of
the campaign. United States Senator
Thurston, of Nebraska, and United
States Senator Burrows, of Michigan,
and Congressman M. J. Fowler, of
New Jersey, are the principal speakers.
At the rate La Follette is gaining he
will have a long lead by the time the
convention is called to order. The
estimates made now do not include
the Milwaukee delegation, the mem
bers of which were elected tonight
under the caucus law. which governs in
this county. The returns are not yet
In, and it is impossible to ascertain
as yet how the men who were chosen
stand on the gubernatorial question.
Great claims are made by all the can
didates, but so far as this county is
concerned they are not based on any
thing tangible, and it is impossible to
tell which faction is nearer the truth.
The latest figures are as follows. La
Follette, 181; Scofield, 86; Baensch, 33;
Elliott, 7: Bradford, 11; Haugen, 2; un
instructed, 92. This gives Baensch the
17 votes of Fond dv Lac, where no in
structions were given.

kota. They were acompanied by Rev. |
M. D. Shutter, who was the guest of j
Mr. Peavey, a nd Division Freight j
Agent Still, of the Northern Pacific, j
The crop estimate here given is based j
upon observation and consultation
with the various members of the party.
The trip was completed last evening,
when all of the members composing the
party returned to the city.
The first trip was made on Tuesday
night as far north as Pembina, N. D. J
No attempt was made to view the crops
until the party started back. The
journey south was made in a private
car, drawn by a special engine, and
j stops were made and the trip timed
to suit the purposes of the party.
The conditions found on the line from
Winnipeg Junction north to Pembina
may be summed up as fair, only.
Crops were in need of rain north of
Graf ton, and the further north the
poorer was the crop. In this section
the general estimate of the crop is as
low as six bushels to the acre. South
of Grafton the conditions were so much
better that the estimates ran from
eight to ten bushels, improving as the
! journey progressed southward. The
total yield of the country included be
tween Fargo and Winnipeg Junction,
on the Northern Pacific, is estimated
j at from
33 to 40 PER CENT
of last year's crop, which was 9,000,000
bushels and was a phenomenally large
one, however. The acreage is not over
70 per cent of last year's, many fields
having been plowed under after seed
ing. As is generally known this was
due to the very wet spring, which con
tinued late, and then the long dry
spell which followed it.
The line of the Fargo Southwestern
from Fargo to La Moure, showed its
wheat fields in excellent condition and
the acreage is somewhat larger than it
was last year. The crop will probably
be at least as large as it was last year,
and it may run over the crop of 1895.
The yield is estimated at all the way
from 17 to 20 bushels to the acre. This
is the section which a few years ago
was very much troubled with the Rus
sian thistle. There is no trouble of this
kind any longer and the farmers are
doing very well.
On the Jamestown and Northern the
general condition is considered good,
about an average crop is expected,
about 65 percent of last year's crop
running about 15 bushels to the acre.
This covers the line from La Moure to
New Rockford and includes the coun
try about Jamestown. The trip east
from Jamestown and including the Coo
perstown branch, which runs north from
the main line of the Northern Pacific,
shows prospects for a crop of about 12
bushels to the acre, or about 50 per
cent of the crop of '95. In fact it is less
than half, tat that crop ran up to 28
bushels. On the remainder of the main
line of the Northern Pacific the average
will be about 60 percent of last year's
crop, running somewhere about 12 bush
els. The crops along here have improved
very much during the last ten day 3.
On the main line of the Northern
Pacific, between Fargo and Little Falls,
there was a considerable increase In
the acreage on account of the opening
of new farms. The total yield is esti
mated at about 65 percent of last
year's, or about 12 to 15 bushels to the
acre. From Little Falls the party went
west via Wadena as far as Milnor, N.
D. In the Great Bend country, they say,
is a small area where the wheat is as
fine as it has ever been anywhere. Har
vest is about ready to begin and the
crop along this entire line is estimated
at 75 percent of last year's yield. After
returning to Little Falls, they went
to Morris and found the crop along
this branch estimated at 13 bushels.
SUMMING UP THE CROP
on the entire line of the Northern
Pacific covered by the party, about 60
per cent of last year's yield is expected.
But as last year's crop was a very
great one. the yield anticipated will
be not far below the average. Last
year's figures were 185,000,000 bushels
for Minnesota and the Dakotas; an
average year is about 125.000,000, and
this year's figures will probably range
There wa« less trouble from smut
this year than last, although this bane

covered doing some damage, but not
enough to seriously threaten any par

elevator men call "spotted," that is,
unevenly advanced. In some places It
is practically ripe, while in others it
Is just headed out
Some attention was paid to the other
grain crops. Flax will be a full yield
and is largely increased in acreage.
Oats and barley have fallen off and
the yield is poor.
Considerable attention was paid to
the sentiment among the men con
sulted regarding the silver sentiment
It was the general opinion of the party
that there was much more gold senti
ment than is generally supposed. The
silver men seemed to be in small sec
tions and occasionally they were found
thick, but the conservative farmers
and others in the country are inclined
toward gold and against the revolu
tionary silver theories.

Many St. Paul bicyclists, probably
the great majority of those who ride
the wheel, have apparently never taken
the trouble to inform themselves of the
terms of the ordinance at present in
effect, governing the use of bicycles and
tricycles on the streets of St. Paul.
To begin with, the limits in which
the riding of any bicycle is prohibited
) "upon or along any public sidewalk of
the paved portion of any street, or
; upon the sidewalk of any park, or' the
foot-path of any bridge of the city,"
are set as follows:
Commencing at the Intersection of

Eagle to West Third; West Third to '
i Summit; Summit to Rice; along Rice j
to University; along University to S
[ Broadway; Broadway to Grove; Grove
to East Seventh; East Seventh to
Maple; Maple to Plum; Plum to the

An amendment prohibits riding upon
the sidewalks on University avenue,
from Dale street to Lexington avenue';
|en the north side of St. Anthony
I avenue, from Prior avenue to the C.
M. & St. P. short line; on Hastings
avenue, from Bates avenue to Earl

street within the following boundaries:
Commencing at intersection of South
Robert and the west shore of the Mis
sissippi; South Robert to Isabel; Isabel
to State; State to Concord; Concord to
South Wabasha; South Wabasha to the
river; and from thence to place of be
The same ordinance fixes the rate of
speed "on any unpaved portion of any
street within the city outside of the
I limits described," at not to exceed six
miles per hour. The speed must not
exceed eight miles on a.ny street.
There is also a provision that no rider
shall approach "within fifty feet of any
pedestrian or any sidewalk" without
giving warning by bell or whistle. The
rider must, further, "secure recognition
of said warning and reduce speed be
fore passing the pedestrian." A lamp
must be carried after sunset; and for
violation of any of the provisions the
police judge may fine the offender any
sum from $1 to $50.
Where bicycle riders get into troubls
; easiest, and merely because of thought
lessness or ignorance of the provisions
of the ordinance, is on streets like Uni
versity and St. Anthony, beyond Dale;
certain cross streets in the same dis
trict, and on South Robert and other
west side streets where the houses
are scattered and pdestrians compara
tively few. In many cases there are
no houses for whole blocks, and some
times there will not be a. pedestrian in
sight as far as the rider can see. Un
der these circumstances, if the wheel
ing in the road is at all heavy, the
bicyclist who does net keep the law
in mind is almost certain to violate it
and thus become liable to arrest and |
fine. It is for the benefit of all such
that the Glob* reprints the provi
sions of the ordinance ift their entirety.

WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN IF

SIBLY HELP IT.
A ST. PAUL COLORED WOMAN,
WHO HAS WON DISTINCTION FOR
HER INTEREST IN HER
AN INTERESTING SKETCH OF HER.
Her Recent Address at Harper's
Ferry Adda History to That
Mra. T. H. Lyles, wife of T. H. Lyles,
of this city, has returned from the
recent convention held in Washington
of the two colored women's societies,
the Colored Women's league and the
Federation of Colored Women, which
followed each other in national'"con
vention in the capitol, and formed a
consolidation, being known hereafter
as the National Association of Colored
Women. During the last evening ses
sion of the convention Mrs. Lyles made
an address on "John Brown and His
Work," "Who," she declared, was "The
grandest warrior who ever buckled on
a sword and the greatest hero of the
nineteenth century. She referred
to the time spent by Brown in assist
ing slaves by his underground railroad,
described the bloody scene at the old
engine house where he was captured,
and spoke feelingly of his four dead
sons. She told how the plea was made
<ir j^Sf //rssV&iliiiiß^y i f ', f a/7 S •
MRS. T. H. LYU3S.
that he was crazy, and how he denied
it. and how on the way to the scaffold
he stooped and kissed a negro child.
"He died a hero," concluded the speak
er, "happy on the scaffold, knowing
that his four sons and himself had
been laid on the altar of sacrifice.
Mrs. Lyles also spoke at Harper's
Ferry, at the first public demonstration
which has been held there since John
Brown struck the blow. Mrs. Lyles is
the organizer of the John Brown as
sociation and also its president. The
society was organized at her home in
this city, Aug. 12, '94, with ten mem
bers, and Aug. 17, the formal organiza
tion was accomplished in the A. M. E.
church on Jay street, and Dec. 26, '95,
at Atlanta Georgia, when the Women's
National Congress was in session in
that city, the organization was made a
national one. Now every state in the
union has its society. Mrs. Lyles is
the daughter of the late Prof. Jacob
Chur, of Peoria, and a niece of T. Chur,
one of the money brokers of New York
city. Her father was an under-ground
railroad man and a personal friend of
John Brown, whom he assisted greatly
during the war in his work among the
slaves. Prof. Chur was accompanist
for Ole Bull and Jenny Lind, and the
organinst in one of the Catholic
churches of Peoria. He was a white
man and his wife was a colored
woman, having some Indian blood in
her veins. Marie Lattie was one of
Prof. Chur's pupils. Mrs. Lyles, on ac
count of her fathers Catholic faith,
was reared In a Catholic academy,
from which she graduated with an un
usually well finished education for a
colored woman. She is also something
of a musical composer and an excellent
pianist. Her father made her promise
to do all she could toward keeping the
memory of John Brown alive, and
with his words in her heart she or
ganized the John Brown association.
Some years ago she wished to carry
out this idea but after corresponding
with the late Fred Douglass, determined
that the time was not yet ripe.
Mrs. Lyles says that the colored
women were well received in Wash
ington, and tha the trip was very
enjoyable. Sight jarloads went down
from Washington to the celebration at
Harper's Ferry, and the Washington
Post band attended. During the after
noon a paper was read from Mrs.
Thompson, of California, the daughter
of John Brown, who expressed grati
tude for the day's demonstration.

CLINTON, 111., Aug. I.— Through the
carelessness of trainmen a frightful
wreck occurred on the curve just east
of Birkbeck, a small station on the Il
linois Central, five miles northeast of
Clinton, this afternoon. Passenger
train No. 504 going south, and passen
ger No. 501 going north, collided while
going at full spefed. The killed:
BURCHNAUGH, CHARLES, engineer, Clin
BAKER, WM., mail agent, Springfleld.
The injured are: Miss Rosa Baker, Chest
nut; N. W. Davis, baggageman; Thomas C.
Dukes, baggageman; Walter Evans, engineer;
Jack Lovell, fireman! Louis Martin, baggage
man, Kankakea; AUle McAvoy, fireman; J. T.
Naylor, baggageman; E. D. Peckens, con
ductor; Shuman Swartwood, fireman.
The trains were scheduled to pass
at Painell. but the north-bound train
was late and orders were given to
side-track at Birkbeck. The name of
the station was overlooked, Conductor
Scott Castle and Engineer Walter
Evans were in charge of the train.
Both engines are complete wrecks, and
one mall car was reduced to splinters.
The other mail caY and both baggage
cars are badly damaged.
The trains were running thirty-five
miles an hour. The curve in the track
probably saved the lives of the pas
sengers. The passengers say the col
lision was so unexpected and sudden
that none of the passengers in the
southbound coach realized what had
happened until all was over. The
coach in which they were did not leave
